Although the Buckeyes eked out a 21-20 win over the Irish in the title game, Crop users voted Notre Dame the top team in the first season of NCAA 13. Perhaps it was the nation's toughest schedule and best record did for the Irish or rather it was that some voters penalized the Buckeyes for ending the season on probation. Notre Dame pulled off the top ranking despite having four first place votes to Ohio State's seven. Stanford and Miami also received votes.
